    Here's an article I mostly agree with (except for the global warming and "equality" nonsense, of course). While the US, Europe and Japan are still stuck in their own arrogant sense of entitlement, the rest of the world is improving at an impressive rate. Small exceptions, of course. And, thanks to evil fracking technology, there's more energy available than ever, to fuel all this.

    Oh, and war has historically not been humanity's biggest killer. That's wrong too. But other than that, they make some good points.

    1. It's not here, so it doesn't matter.
    2. I only skimmed, but it seems the article fails to mention that all this industrialization over the last ten years has created the worst pollution in the history of the world.
